Fantasy Football: Rising and Falling for Week 13

Here's a look at some players who are trending in the right direction and some that you should probably worry about heading into Week 13.


RISING


Quarterbacks


Justin Herbert, Chargers: He still hasn't thrown for more than 300 yards since Week 4, but he has five touchdown passes over the last two weeks and his next three weeks should be very productive for him.


Trevor Lawrence, Jaguars: Lawrence also has thrown five touchdowns over the last two weeks, including a 321-yard performance against the Ravens. He has two great matchups for the position coming up.


Derek Carr, Raiders: He's thrown for at least 248 yards and at least two touchdowns in four straight games, including a 295-yard, 3-TD performance against the Seahawks in Week 12. His next two opponents are the Chargers and Rams.


Running backs


Josh Jacobs, Raiders: No one had a better fantasy game than Jacobs in Week 12 as he rushed for 229 yards, including the winning 86-yard touchdown run. He also had six catches for 74 yards.


James Conner, Cardinals: It had been awhile since I'd seen Conner look like he had some juice. He rushed 25 times for 120 yards and scored on a touchdown reception. That made for his third straight game scoring a touchdown.


Brian Robinson, Commanders: Two of his last three games have produced solid fantasy scores. Now he gets the Giants back-to-back and they just let Ezekiel Elliott rush for 92 yards and score.


Wide receivers


Garrett Wilson, Jets: Having Mike White start at QB must have brought on a sigh of relief for Wilson managers as the rookie was being held back by Zach Wilson's poor play. The WR caught five passes for 95 yards and two touchdowns with a lot of great matchups upcoming.


Chris Godwin, Buccaneers: Godwin finally eclipsed the 100-yard mark this season as he caught a season-high 12 passes for 110 yards and a touchdown. He's been solid since Week 4, but he's starting to produce even better.


Amon-Ra St. Brown, Lions: St. Brown had his second 100-yard game in three weeks as he caught nine passes for a season-high 122 yards and a touchdown. Three of his next four matchups are juicy.


FALLING


Quarterbacks


Aaron Rodgers, Packers: He's been having a tough time all season and a rib injury, coupled with the 4-8 record, could be enough to shut it down for the season. Jordan Love may get an extended look as well.


Russell Wilson, Broncos: It really can't get much worse for the Broncos, but it somehow does. Wilson had a season-low 142 passing yards and a touchdown in the loss to the Panthers.


Ryan Tannehill, Titans: He had two straight quality games before a TD-less game against the Bengals in Week 12.


Running backs


Kareem Hunt, Browns: He hit his ceiling in Week 1 and has had a down year as the change up back for Nick Chubb. Hunt hasn't had double-digit carries since Week 8 and he hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 7.


Kenyan Drake, Ravens: Gus Edwards' return marked bad news for Drake. He had just two rushes for two yards after having double-digit rushes in the previous week.


Dameon Pierce, Texans: Back-to-back games in which he totaled just eight rushing yards has him in the do-not-start list for now.


Wide receivers


Tyler Boyd, Bengals: He's gained fewer than 50 yards in each of his last four games, including a 16-yard performance against the Titans. Tee Higgins deserves to be the top target, but you'd think Boyd would be doing better with Ja'Marr Chase still sidelined.


Drake London, Falcons: A touchdown saved him from a complete dude in Week 11, but he did poorly in Week 12 by catching just two passes for 29 yards.


Mike Evans, Buccaneers: Three straight games of less than 60 yards receiving doesn't bode well for fantasy managers looking to make the playoffs.
